TagASaurus - Adware, also known as advertising software, displays third-party advertising on the computer. The ads can take several forms, including pop-ups, pop-unders, banners, or links embedded within web pages or parts of the Windows interface. Some adware advertising might consists of text ads shown within the application itself or within side bars, search bars, and search results. Adware is often contextually or behaviorally based and tracks browsing habits in order to display ads that are meant to be relevant to the user.

Download, install, and update AVG Anti-Spyware - Windows 2000 and XP, only.
Then run this program, along with Ad-Aware and Spybot, in Safe Mode.
